  • Brooke Weston Academy and Corby Technical School Sixth Form Collaboration

    Published 03/04/20

    Dear colleagues, students, parents/carers,

    Earlier this academic year we held a public consultation on our proposal to close the sixth form at Corby Technical School (CTS) and expand the one at Brooke Weston Academy (BWA) by educating students across both sites under BWA’s control.

    Since that time changes in the demand for places at our schools in Corby over the next few years, and at CTS in particular, have given us pause for thought. Recent negotiations with the local authority mean we can be confident the number of students attending CTS in coming years will be at least 150 per year group and for the next two cohorts at least (September 2020 and 2021) the numbers will be even larger.

    As a consequence, we now intend to maintain separate sixth forms at both schools with planned growth of the CTS offer over time to meet the needs of the larger year groups coming through the school.

    The changed circumstance means we can operate viable sixth forms of high quality at both schools. Doing this avoids the challenges of running a split site operation. However, we will continue to work closely together on some aspects of our new curriculum model and collaborate on enrichment activities and, if necessary, teaching of shortage subjects.  

    Yours faithfully,

    Mr P Kirkbride Mrs A Reynolds 

     Principal, Brooke Weston Academy
